I'm thinking about doing an interior upgrade on my WS6, to make it look more mean and more modern. The only thing i have aftermarket in it is a smaller cd player. Its all black and leather on the inside so I'd love to hear what you all suggest I do. Any badges I should be aware of? LED kits? Maybe spray paint a few things? Tell me what you think a great setup would be!2014 Camaro: Check. 2SS: Check. 1LE: Check. 6 Speed manual? CHECK

I am curious of what others think as well. I started to upgrade my interior. But, since I am no good at any type of upholstering, I am going to rip out what I have done. I have a couple more weeks of painting exterior pieces, then I am going to dive inside the car. I think I have narrowed it down to painting alone. Reskin the felt in the middle of the door panels, and maybe put in black carpet. The LED lights would make a big difference. Did you see the LED thread? I would like to replace the front seats. Go for the 5 points. They seem pretty cheap. Hopefully not too cheap.

WELDING THE PLASTIC ON YOUR CAR BUMPER - YouTube Here is a video I found, and plan on following to repair the cracks in my doors. And any other cracks I find. Seems pretty simple to do.

The only changes I've done to my interior are a 6-point roll cage, racing seats, 5-point harnesses, and a a-pillar triple gauge pod.

I painted my switch panels. That is the only interior mod I have done.
It looks good but I am going to be repainting it a different color.1998 Trans Am WS6 - Phantom

Not sure if they're still a sponsor, but you could try Afterthoughts automotive.

Great advice thanks everyone. Az gt I did check out the LED thread they looked fantastic, definitely something to think about. Painting a few plastic interior parts might be a great idea as well! But if I don't like it than I just did something irreversible.. Is there anything cool I can do to the center console or dash? Any cool interior badges? Show me some pics of your custom interiors

i only have a pic of my shifter handle replacement, and il post that if i can, but i have seats waiting for install, no need to go super expensive unless its a show car, also, a few well placed nice looking toggle switches for fan control, and other aux accesories will give it a classy race look, just dont go overboard. also, just my opinion, but painting anything in the interior never seems to come out looking good most times. also a few gauges on the a-pillar does look nice, and ive seen overlat decals for the shifter that say anything you want.
